RE: [XaraXtreme-dev] Xara Xtreme 4.0 released

Here is the "official" archive as linked to from the project's web site.


I would really like to see the message where you ask if the intention
was ever to release CDraw and the reply that you and many others read as

I don't keep an archive of this list, and I can't find an official one,
so this is from memory.  Some time ago when it became clear if you were
not going to open GDraw, I asked if you ever intended to do so: your
reply was read by me and many others as a "No".  Given the line given to
us before then was along the lines of "we'll see, depending on community
participation", I can't see how that's anything other than dishonesty.
